Recipe for Mexican green salsa

July 10th, 2013 by Boanerges Aleman-Meza

Adapted from an existing recipe for Mexican green salsa


  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 2 serrano pepers
  • 20 sticks of cilantro
  • salt


  1. Wash everything
  2. Put a small chunk of onion (approx. 1/8th of the onion), the tomatoes, serrano pepers and the garlic on a frying pan on high flame until they burn a little. For example, the tomato should be cooked enough so that its skin could be easily removed by hand
  3. Blend everything (except the tomatoes), adding 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 tsp of salt
  4. Add the tomatoes to the blender and blend again but only enough so that the tomatoes are sort of chopped instead of fully blended.
